Using a fax machine, such documents were easily transferred from one place to the other using a telephone line. But for efficiently using their services, it was necessary for both the sender and receiver to switch on their devices. It was only then did the intended messages or papers reached the receiving end.
It was one of the most convenient and very useful innovation of man which of course was little time consuming when the documents or file ran to pages but it was worth the wait for the purpose got solved without physical movements.

The only expenditure here would be the monthly amount being paid to the service provider and nothing else. Your messages can fly and reach the intended person freely without a tussle. Using this would help you reduce time, costs etc when compared to the working and usage of the traditional fax machines.
